Hello, I am Jan Grünfeld and this is my album "Music for plants". When you read the title, you expect no rock'n'roll, indie or pop. Of course, the music is pretty ambient. The key ingredients for a successful track are therefore: good soil, a suntrap, occasionally rain and fresh air. Well and headphones! The tracks are based on a live improvisation with electric guitar and a looping machine. I recorded the music in the summer of 2014 on a huge balcony of an old villa in Bad Muskau,...

And then, all of a sudden, as if the storm came to an end, the room became silent. One heard a silent rattling reminding us of sundering thoughts, but still the room was silent. There was a roar of anepia around us, a shaft of light above the horizon starting to scream. Then we lay, floated, lay again on the constantly shapeshifting floor, being held by contemplation’s grip. Bridges formed, ruptures yawned, their mouthes, wide open at first, slowly closing (this is the work of our scars set... Topics: hpcd108, headphonica, Ana Bogner

I've often wondered if plants dream as they sleep through the winter, and if they do, do they remember their dreams when they wake in the spring? Does the nature of the dream effect how they grow that season?

This album was about putting everything on the table. It was about not thinking about anything, but feeling. To get rid of a whole past that doesn't suit the present anymore. It was about not judging any ideas that come through as good or bad, but to accept them and to go with the flow of creativity. To not worry about perfection in terms of music or life because the truth is that the only perfection is to fully accept that we are imperfect, and that in itself is the perfect way to be.
